General method for flavonoids synthesis

Wide range of biological property of flavones has resulted intense synthetic efforts towards the synthesis of various flavones. There are a number of methods reported for the synthesis of flavones. Both flavones and flavonols are structurally very close. Flavonols are known as 3-hydroxyflavones. Many publications in the literature have been illustrating different synthetic strategies of flavones, but a majority of these methods falls into the category of either oxidative cyclization of various substituted 2-hydroxychalcones 3 or cyclodehydration of substituted 1 - (2-hydroxyphenyl) - 3 - phenylpropane - 1, 3 - dione 6 (Scheme 1).

All reactions were performed under argon and monitored by TLC and analytical HPLC. Otherwise indicated, the 1H and 13C NMR spectra were recorded in CDCl3 with a Varian Gemini-300 spectrometer at 300 and 75 MHZ, respectively (proton decoupling mode for carbon). 1H NMR spectra were referenced to the signal at δ = 7.27 ppm of residual CHCl3. 13C NMR spectra were referenced to signals of CDCl3 (δ = 77.0 ppm). Resonances of the benzyl group are not mentioned. FT-IR spectra were recorded with a Nicolet Avatar 320 FT-IR spectrophotometer. UV-visible Spectra were recorded with a Kontron Uvikon 930 spectrophotometer fitted with a quartz cell.

General procedure for synthesis of Flavanones and Aryl chalcones by microwave: 2.5 mmole of Hetero Aldehyde/Aryl Aldehyde and 2.5 mmole of 2-hydroxy-4-substituted acetophenone were taken in 250ml RBF. 20 ml Ethanol and 0.1 mole of Potassium hydroxide were added in same RBF. The RBF was kept in Microwave at low voltage for 2-8 min. The reaction was moniterd by TLC. Ethanol was evaporated and solid washed with cold water. Recrystallized from Methanol.

"Flavanones are chiral molecules, which come in two 'flavors,'" said Scheidt, who is left-handed and says he has been sensitive to handedness all his life. "We have a method to make just one 'flavor,' which no one has done before. Chiral molecules come in mirror images of the other, or two different 'hands.' Like your own hands, you can't superimpose one hand on the other. In both people and molecules, a left hand and a right hand are very similar but are not the same. In synthesizing flavonoids, you want to make one handedness over the other."

Chemistry of Modified Flavonoids

RESULT AND DISCUSSION: The objective of the present work was to synthesis and biological evaluation of some new flavonoids associated with Flavanone and Chalcone derivatives. The yield of different synthesized compounds was founds to be in the range of 40-70% and the characterization was done by melting point and TLC. Characteristic IR bands show several functional vibrational modes which confirm the completion of reaction. New moieties structures were confirmed by 1H NMR and Mass spectral studies. The antibacterial activity and antifungal of new derivatives showed activity against S. aureus and C. albicans strain. Compound was found most active as antibacterial and antifungal activities which suggest that a 7- Methoxy derivatives show more activity against bacteria and fungi.

Rutin 23 shows activity in some animal and in vitro models 55, 56. Rutin inhibits activity reported by Reddy et al.57 Aldose reductase is an enzyme normally present in the eye and elsewhere in the body. It helps to change glucose into the sugar alcohol sorbitol. Furthermore, it has been shown to inhibit the vascular endothelial growth factor in subtoxic concentrations, so acts as an inhibitor of angiogenesis in in-vitro conditions. This finding may have potential relevance for the control of some cancers 58.
